Summary: This game is great! I've had it for only a week now, and I already beat it -- not because it's too short, but because I was so engrossed, I could not put it down. I haven't been this sucked into a game in a long while. This is going right on the top of my list of favorite puzzle/adventure games... well, JUST below the Monkey Island series, that is. I will definitely play this game again in a few years when I forget most of the details.
Summary: Ghost Trick is an immensely fun game. I found myself having a hard time putting it down. You play the role of a ghost. You've just died *no spoilers* and have no idea who you are and why you were murdered (at a junkyard, no less). So you set off to solving the mystery of your death (with the guide of a desk lamp - I'm not kidding). Along the way, you save potential victims via Powers of the Dead. Not everyone possesses these powers, but you certainly do.
Summary: This game is basically Rube Goldberg machine the game-- plus ghosts! The game play is fun, but challenging (in terms of thinking through what move to take next), the characters are adorable, and the story is really cool. The plot twists basically blew my mind, then went back in time four minutes, brought me back to life, and then blew my mind again. I had the strong urge to replay the whole thing all over again after the credits.
Summary: If you like the Ace Attorney games, you'll like this too. The characters are just as fun, lovable and memorable as the previously mentioned game series. The game play and plot are good, though sometimes repetitive. The ending, while good, could have been much better. And it is way too short. I wanted to play loads more chapters, but that is not necessarily a bad thing, wanting more of a good game. Worth every penny.
Summary: I've been wanting to play this game ever since it came out years ago and now that i finally got a 2ds it's finally happening. The concept of the game is actually pretty fun to play and interesting.
Ghost Trick has a great story, but lacks in gameplay

Summary: The Good: Gorgeous graphics and animation, great use of the touch screen, deep story with memorable characters The Bad: Story is convoluted at the end, poor difficulty balancing, too much trial and error, more talking than gameplay, gets redundant after a while The last great game I remember playing where you were a ghost was Geist for GameCube.
Summary: A very short while ago I watched a video that featured Ghost Trick briefly, and I fell in love with the graphic style of the game. After ordering it with some other DS games, for use on my 3DS XL, I decided that it would be the first of the batch that I would play, and therefore also one of the first games I had played on the system in months. Throughout this game I found myself saying 'what a great game' aloud, after finding one thing or another that was amazing.
Summary: This is probably the cleverest and most polished video game I have played all year. It is very much like one of the old Sierra point-click games--but cleverer and without the annoying bugs. There really needs to be a sequel.
Summary: This is probably one of the best adventure/puzzle games I've ever played. The game combines a good mystery story, fun puzzle gameplay, a unique and pleasant looking graphical style, and funny and interesting characters. You play as a ghost trying to solve the circumstances and reason for his death, and along the way you end up saving and crossing paths with many people who are all connected somehow.
